Leave The Pack Behind – 2880 Minutes Contest

Rules and Regulations
This is the first Mohawk College Quit smoking for 2880 Minutes
Contest. The 2880 minutes actually equal 48 hours. The objective
of this contest is to encourage and motivate students at Mohawk
College to try to quit smoking. The first step is contemplating
on quitting, the second step to prepare yourself for the challenge
and finally, actually taking action!!
(* Applications are limited)

To be eligible for the contest draw you must
be a smoker. There are two categories. Select the category that
best applies to you. A) Regular smoker: individual who smokes
a few cigarettes or more on a daily basis. B) Casual smoker: individual
who does smoke, but not necessarily on a daily basis, usually
on occasion (i.e. a few or more cigarettes a week).

Registration for the contest
Location: Mohawk College Fennell Campus,
Find us at C-Wing Hall near Student Access

Date: Tuesday, February 17th, 2004
Time: 9a.m. to 12 noon

At the registration area, you will be required
to take a Smokalyzer test with the Carbon Monoxide (CO) Monitor.
Your CO level will be recorded on your registration sheet. You
will then be required to have a ‘buddy’ or a ‘friend’
sign a Declaration form. The purpose of having a buddy to sign
the form is to ensure that you have a witness to confirm that
you have fulfilled the requirements of the contest in order to
be eligible to win. He or she will also be a support person during
the 48 hours of the contest.

During the contest:

  • Contestants must not smoke after the registration day Carbon
    Monoxide test.
  • The individual must remain smoke free for the next 48 hours
    until the final day in which the contestant must return for
    a second Carbon Monoxide test.
